Hi, I would like to ask some questions. 1)Has any one every undertaken an online world development. The idea being to create a world in which an avatar could walk around in in 3D and explore? 2)Does any one think it would be possible. 3)Would C++ be best for the job? 4)How much development time do you think the engine would need if it were possible to walk into houses etc. ''There''s a crack in everything, thats how the light gets in.''

Something like that already exists. Its called Microsoft V-Chat, and you can download it from www.microsoft.com. Just search for it. It is a really nice (but slow) chat program where you can walk around in 3d space and wave, bow, etc. You can even make your own avatars (that is what Microsoft calls them, btw).

I'm thinking more along the lines of a traditional role playing aid with the world already mapped out. The GM would be able to set things up in the world and the players would see everything visually. I have little programming experience but would like to run the project using and overseing the resources of the web and it's users.
